Students should expect a relaxing learning environment that is cultivated to bring the fundamentals of guitar playing to the student and promote individuality in the player through a meditation of self-awareness while using the vehicle of Guitar. Lesson are taught out of my home studio space located convenient in the East Falls, Sherman Mills Artist lofts. Designated parking lot for easy access!

Lessons are structured around: Finger exercises, Chord building, Strumming patterns, Scales, Arpeggios, Harmony studies and Improvisational chop building.

after just 3-6 short months, students will see an increase in comfortability with the notes on the fret board, basic chord progressions and single note soloing!

Ryan isn't just the best teacher on here, he's one of the best people and musicians you'll meet. A true professional guitarist who has toured and played his whole life, Ryan teaches guitar the right way. He's totally chill and he makes you want to practice every week. I can't recommend him enough. Thanks, Ryan!
Theresa
Ryan is a really terrific teacher! He was happy to tailor the lessons to meet my goals and my desired pace. As an adult beginner learner, I really appreciate working with him.
Karan
I started taking guitar lessons from Ryan 2 months ago and he is the first teacher I have stuck to for this long, and more importantly, the longest I have stayed with the instrument! Ryan takes the time to understand my needs and the kind of music I enjoy and tailors the lessons accordingly.

He is incredibly knowledgeable and an awesome guitarist. The lessons are always fun and he is very responsive to any questions I have and encourages sharing musical things I enjoy so he can understand my tastes better.

Very glad to have found Ryan and looking forward to many more lessons with him!

Is it hard to play the harp? That’s usually the first question people ask. My answer? Not at all! I teach the harp in three easy steps: Speak, Read, Write .

"Speaking" music simply means learning to listen and play your harp. We learn tunes by ear to start, just like you would if you were learning a language.

Reading and Writing are what allow you to pick up your favorite piece of music and learn it on your own, just like reading a book.

Whether you want to play in a concert hall or in your living room, I will give you the knowledge and technique to help you make the harp a part of your life.

"I can not say enough positive things about Kristen and her teaching! She is one of the best teachers I have had. She understands that adults learn differently than kids. Kristen has a great way of giving feedback that inspires you to grow and learn. I especially enjoy the flexibility she demonstrates in her teaching style. If I am not getting something, the next week she has a different method to teach it and bingo, it has clicked."

How to Read & Understand Stage Directions

If you’ve ever been in a play or musical you will be familiar with the term ‘stage directions’. For those who don’t know, stage directions are,  “an instruction in the text of a play, especially one indicating the movement, position, or tone of an actor.” Stage directions can also be instructions for the director, such as the way the stage should be lit or what kind of sound effect could be used.  Stage directions can also tell an actor how to deliver a line— pace of speech, emot …

How to Handle Rejection as an Actor

One of my college acting professors told us, “if you can’t handle rejection, find another major. Actors are rejected more than they’re cast. You will have to deal with rejection every day; and if you let it get to you, you won’t last long”. Those words stuck with me all these years: not only for their brutal honesty, but also because I wish I had asked her: how do we deal with all this rejection? Fortunately, there are many A-list stars who can tell you stories of how they experie …

Who is the Highest Paid Actor? Why Your Paycheck May Not Reflect Your Skill Level

Who is your favorite actor? For the past few years, it’s been Denzel Washington, according to polls. Count me amongst the masses! Denzel Washington is fantastic, and he’s my favorite actor, too. For decades, he’s wowed me with his dramatic prowess. The man even has the acting chops to tackle great theatrical works on Broadway, such as A Raisin in the Sun, and blew the critics away there as well. He’s played a wide variety of roles, portraying men in various time periods and from n …
